  • The hammered 'tsuchime' finish acts like hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag.

This is a super knife for getting parsley or herbs super fine and dry, or mincing finer veggies like shallots or garlic. Or making teensy strips of citrus peel for zest or candied peel. Beware, If you are in the habit of brushing food off your knife blade with your hands, you will want to rethink that, as you can cut yourself on this uber sharp blade edge. I also have the 7" shun premier santoku, perfect for onions, root veggies and larger volume chopping jobs, but a bit big for a clove or two of garlic. All my other knives are Global, I love the light weight and even weight distribution across the range, and have had the same set for about 8 years. But they are far softer than Shun which makes them less likely to chip but needing sharpening more frequently. I would not dare to sharpen these hammered Shun blades myself. Also, I would not store them in a knife block either vertical or horizontal - they deserve a knife magnet. They are gorgeous to behold and weightier than global but not in a bad way. You can do transparent slices of carrot with complete control and no "ka-chunk" onto your chopping block with this and the santoku. Very impressive line. They are new to me, and I will have to see how they wear over time.

I'd also recommend: Global
